Faith Martin is happily married to the football coach. A rally is scheduled for the eve of the big game. But it’s the night that Julian, Faith’s old friend, is to appear in a program of readings that results in instant conflict between the Athletic and Speech departments. Faith finds herself in the middle when Miss Speare of Speech accuses her of “carrying on” with Julian. On top of that, Faith’s rich aunt, who’s never met her husband, is arriving. If her aunt approves, all will be well. Then, in the middle of dinner preparations, Faith’s maid quits. She gets Julian to masquerade as the new maid – then another maid appears – and another – to everyone’s amazement.
